Philadelphia apparently has a Business Privilege Tax for residents who engage in any sort of “activity for profit,” including blogging for ads. Would this roll in Michigan?

It probably depends who the elected officials are. Politics aside, states are hurting right now for cash and they can't print money like the feds, they'll look for money wherever they can find it.
...how redundant it is to put "discuss" at the end of a post that has a comment field and is posted in a blog that has lively discussion?
Sorry, that probably wasn't worth the discussion, was it?
Talk amongst yourselves. Here, I'll give you a topic. The Ayatollah, do you think he prefers snickers or milky way? Discuss.
Any time the first two words of a thread title are "OT: MGoBlog..." the title is either misleading or not OT.
I was looking for a discussion about whether blogs are fair game for taxation. And whether taxing bloggers would make the Bleacher Report types a bit more responsible like MGoBlog types. No Tea Party grumbling intended, for you politically hyper-sensitive types.
states and municipalities have to post notice before they can levy a new tax, and it usually must pass a supermajority vote at the state level. my point is you would hear people complaining about it before it passed. Kind of like the ice cream truck rolling down my street.
The State of Michigan is also likely to impose the Michigan Business Tax on Brian if he is over the $350k gross receipts threshold.
and we wonder why there's a brain drain...
